We are taught to hurry, to get things done quickly, grow our businesses fast, before someone else comes along and does it first.
There is a great deal of pressure associated with this philosophy and it is all driven by the feeling of following the accepted ‘wisdom’.
It is all part of a culture of instant gratification and not being prepared to wait for anything.
We set up a business and immediately want to fast track it to success by borrowing money and buying instant success.
If it doesn’t work instantly, then ‘pivot’ also known as giving up.
But where is the fun in that? Where is the sense of satisfaction?
Life is a wonderful journey and if we are to craft our very best creations, then that takes time.
Taking time and enjoying it, is much more rewarding and it doesn’t matter if others are perceived to have done ‘it’ first, as you are not looking to create any kind of ‘it’. You are looking to create your own unique work, that will be simply that, unique. That takes time, practice and patience.
Enjoy what you do, don’t rush it for others. Go and create what resonates with you, take your time, enjoy the challenges and digest the learning. Then feel the happiness and joy of sharing something that you know is the best you could have done.
